Hardwood, Gotta Love It!

The more I use this stamp, the more I love if! At first I thought of horses and then flowers against a barn wall... And it keeps evolving!

This is how I gave the flowers some dimension. This is a pad from the old paper piercing pack. I have the larger mat that we sell now, but this little one is so convenient for things like this. You could use a piece of fun foam as well. For this size flower, I needed a larger surface than an embossing tool, so I used the rounded end of a pen. I placed it in the center of the smaller flowers and twisted a bit, while pushing in. For the larger flower, I did the same thing in the center, and in each of the petals too.
